Healing drone is not afraid of collisions on obstacles (3 photos + video)
Insects hit the glass, lost his balance and fallen down, not lose limbs and not die, and rather quickly “come to life” and continue on your flight. “A useful skill!”, thought engineers the Swiss National research center of robotics (type NCCR) and the Federal Polytechnic school of Lausanne, decided to award the same feature of the modern personal UAV. At the outlet they still managed to get a little resistant to collisions flexible drone, whose skeleton is made of a thin durable fiberglass frames, fixed in the middle with a magnet and rubber compounds. There are battery with on-Board computer. No matter how strong was not hitting an obstacle, the subject recovers its own design in less than a second, and then again ready for the new threat of flying with an unpredictable outcome. Only the UAV was able to successfully sustain more than 50 collisions. The invented solution according to the Swiss specialists, can be useful not only in the design of unmanned, but in designing robots.
